SJOERD GERRITSEN

Have you ever been in an audience where no one was paying attention? Cringing at how the speaker was powering through his slides without connecting with the room? It is a waste of time, money, and effort. This can be done differently.

CUSTOMIZED SPEAKING

Whoever the audience is, the main message of the presentation is set - it has to be, otherwise I cannot guarantee quality. Having said that, I am always eager to learn who is in the audience! Learning about the audience allows me to adapt the presentation to best suit their needs.

For the presentation to have the maximum impact we will discuss what the current situation of the audience is. I want to know what their challenges are, what they struggle with on a daily basis, and what their desired goals are.

BACKGROUND

Personal development and life design are huge passions of mine. It enables me to stay creative and gives me an opportunity for fulfillment. I put a lot of commitment into my work, and give myself fully to all my clients.

When I started (and three years later failed) my first company I was seventeen, ever since that first moment of freedom I have enjoyed of seeing the world as a playground. With more than a decade of falling and getting back up again I know the challenges of crafting the life you want, finding focus, and staying motivated.

Over the years I've spoken to several thousands of people about entrepreneurship and personal development in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, and Canada.

As author of the book 'Future You: Embrace the World as Your Playground' I help the millennial shape his future. The book intersperses science, interviews, and personal anekdotes in a understandable and accessible way to give a guide for those who seek it.
